The HCTV family is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of long-time volunteer Harvey Harris. His electrical engineering background was an asset to our operations, and he inspired young volunteers to pursue that field. He looked forward to helping out with HCTV’s coverage of the Herndon Festival every year, and loved giving tours of the station to Scout groups. He always had a smile on his face, and always had a joke ready for you. He will be sorely missed.


Welcome to Herndon Community Television!

Brian-Rose-300x225We are a non-profit, cable access PEG station located in Northern Virginia.

Herndon Community Television, Channel 23 on Cox Communications and Channel 28 on Verizon FIOS, was started in 1990 by a group of community-minded volunteers.

We are a non-commercial, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, dedicated to providing Herndon and the surrounding viewing area with access to community government affairs programming, community cultural events, and educational programming of interest to Town residents and local schools.

HCTV is run by volunteers!

Our camera crew, directors, audio technicians and engineers donate their valuable time to keep the station running.

What makes HCTV special?

editing roomIt is run almost entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers produce, direct, run cameras and other television equipment, and provide equipment and technical support to the station. We offer on-the-job training for those interested in television production.

HCTV currently broadcasts from the Old Town Hall in historic downtown Herndon, Virginia. We have a small studio and a mobile production van that enable us to produce our own programming. We also have a studio in the Herndon Town Council Chambers on Lynn street that allows us to provide live broadcasts of Town meetings and special events held in the chambers.

In order to keep up with today’s technology, HCTV is continually in the process of upgrading and adding equipment. Budget constraints make this a slow process! If you are interested in becoming an HCTV Supporter, please visit our Sponsor/Member page for more information.
